Unison
78rpm records

This was the Co-operative Society ('The Co-op') own record label and sold exclusively in their shops during the 1920s.  They were pressed for the Co-op by the Vocalion Gramophone Company and duplicate exactly their own 8-inch 'Broadcast' records.
.
This is the only gramophone record in the Archive on the Unison label and is of Master Bobby Lemaire, Head Chorister of Clumber Park Choir School and subsequently St Nicolas College Chislehurst and was recorded in the summer of 1929.  
.
Originally issued as an 8-inch 'Broadcast' record, it proved so popular that Woolworth's had it pressed to their own Unison label.
